2. This example shows how to write HTML that submit forms

This is used to submit to other sites that expect certain variables. This one submits to http:\\www.hcidata.info
Actual Example:
Domain Name
IP Address

Here is how I did it:
      <form action="http:\\www.hcidata.info/host2ip.cgi" method=POST>
        <table width="585">
            <td>Domain Name
              <input type="TEXT" name="domainname" size=35 maxlength=60 value="localhost">
              <input type="SUBMIT" value=" Find IP Address " name="findIP">
            <td rowspan="2">
            <td>IP Address
              <input type="TEXT" name="ipaddress" size=15 maxlength=15 value="">
              <input type="SUBMIT" value=" Find Host Name " name="findHOST">

Note the use of http:\\ instead of http:// in this code. This one uses POST method.

3. Another example: Submitting to the site www.iwhois.com

The url expects you to pass the following variables: (1)domain (2)tld and (3) lookup

All you need to do is to create the form with a little knowledge of HTML.

Here is the actual Example:

Shorter output Highlight key fields
Show status only


Here is how I did it:

 <form id="whoisform" name="whoisform"  action=http:\\www.iwhois.com/index.php method="get" >
 <input type="text" name="domain" >
 <select name="tld">
  <option value="com" SELECTED >.com
  <option value="net">.net
  <option value="org">.org
  <option value="cno" style="color:red;font-weight:bold;">.cno
  <option value="info">.info
  <option value="biz">.biz
  <option value="us">.us
  <option value="ca">.ca
  <option value="co.uk">.co.uk
  <option value="org.uk">.org.uk
  <option value="de">.de
  <option value="all" style="color:red;font-weight:bold;">.all
 <input type="hidden" name="lookup" value="Lookup">
 <input type="submit" value="Lookup" name="submitbutton">
<table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0"> <tr valign="middle"> <td align="left"><input type="checkbox" name="clean" value="1" CHECKED /> <td>Shorter output</td> <td align="left"><input type="checkbox" name="hilite" value="1" /> <td>Highlight key fields
<td align="left"><input type="checkbox" name="statusonly" value="1" /> <td>Show status only </tr> </table> </form>

Note: This one uses GET method to get values into the URL.

That's it!! Enjoy ~ Elrey Ronald
